Question :

Family Lawyer: Is it permissible for a husband to make purchases using his wife’s income?


  1. While a wife is not obligated to share her income with her husband, if the couple mutually agrees to manage and spend their earnings with a shared understanding, there is no legal restriction in Pakistan. The superior courts in Pakistan, in numerous judgments, have emphasized the sanctity of the marital bond, likening it to two wheels of a vehicle. According to this analogy, for a successful life journey, both wheels (spouses) must work together collaboratively. Therefore, it is permissible for you to use your wife’s earnings, provided it is done with her free will and consent.
